Teaching

  • I combine my knowledge and understanding from practice along with contemporary research and my diverse professional experience to inform my lectures and guide my students in their landscape architecture research, design and visualisation.
  • Aligned with the theoretical framework of ‘social constructivism’, my personal teaching philosophy is informed by the notion of ‘teacher as a facilitator for learning’. This approach translates to my developmental, nurturing and social reform style of teaching that encourages “deep, social and situated learning”. My approach also aligns with the key activities, knowledge and values outlined in Higher Education Academy’s Professional Standard Framework. The aim is to empower students – ‘future world citizens’ with the knowledge, skills and understanding to pursue socio-cultural and economic transformation while living in balance with nature.
  • To facilitate knowledge sharing, collaboration and collective learning, I align the projects and study areas between units that in turn encourages students to have in-depth engagement with theory, research and design – and result in “cooperative and problem-based learning” using real life scenarios. Building a research – design community that aligns with QUT’s 2020 Vision – “real world learning”, my deep learning and active teaching practice supports diverse student cohorts in building community and belonging, and engaging with diverse socio-cultural and ecologically sensitive communities.
